Hi I am Kristina, a young 59 year old massage therapist with a strong eco bent! I have a querky house so it is said! My aim is to live as gently, and appreciatively, on this planet as possible. Always learning. Prefer no harsh chemicals and I have a very sensitive nose to synthetic perfumes, after shaves etc. I have two friendly staffy-crosses for entertainment. They sing if encouraged the right way!

I am happy to share knowledge I have gained in many subjects over the years. Teach basic massage. Talk about personal development and experiences. Help with their English as best I can. I am half Swedish so always willing to refresh my Swedish! Learnt French and that could be upgraded! I would enjoy learning any other languages as well.
I need help to keep the house together (domestic god/goddess) (including making simple meals using as much as possible from the garden and in the cupboards) as well as get involved in my various projects: round wood glass veranda before cobbing work cabin; making signs for anti-littering; sewing covers for outdoor big cushions; gardening (and watering if this hot weather continues); chopping wood for woodburners; de-nailing sawn timber for re-use.
If you are good at organising and making things more tidy and efficient - glady appreciate that. Though some things already have good systems.
Swedish, French (both basic)
Single private room. Shared use of downstairs bathroom or shower room. Shared use of whole house. There is a room I rent to travellers or other interesting people passing through.
I would supply basic food for breakfast, lunch and supper. Snacks if not made from my supplies, I would prefer guest to buy separately. Usually have fruit around (eat from garden what is in season as well), nuts and seeds etc.
I prefer to shop with zero-waste and easier if others agree.
I live in a small village which has a local shop for basics, a pub, a primary school, church and village hall. There are events going on locally or in nearby villages. Yoga classes, bowls, village fetes. Forest School.
I have a bike and blow up canoe you can borrow. Great area for cycling (occasional hills!) Canal and river for boating. Wonderful walks. I have 2 friendly dogs who always want to go for walks.
If I go shopping or to places, welcome to come with me. Or happy to drop somewhere if on the way.
Its peaceful so if looking for town/city activities, here is not your cup of tea!
